The SMT History of Theory Interest group /  AMS Study Group aims to bring together scholars interested in the history of music theory, broadly construed. During annual meetings, the group fosters the development of new connections between scholars and facilitates the in-person exchange of ideas. It also presents a forum in its meetings and proposed evening panels for presenting new research and engaging with questions of pedagogy, methodology, and the like.
